The present official publication was prepared and released to serve as a good companion to the industry FAQ document on the subject of verification of the gross mass of the packed containers transported on board ships, and expands the content of the original publication. It was developed on the basis of the joint efforts of the leading industry experts representing different organizations such as the WSC, standing for the World Shipping Council, Global Shippers Forum, TT Club and others.
There are three major sections making the main body of the document. The section A is covering the requirement for the accurate gross mass, application of the enforcement tolerance threshold to the determination of compliance with relevant requirements of SOLAS convention, i.e. the content of the industry FAQs A6, A9, A10 and A12. The section B addresses the industry FAQs nos. B1, B3, B4 including list of the wieghbridges available publically, verified weighers and container handling equipment accuracy.
The section C is devoted to the Method 2 implemented by UK MCA. Three appendices at the end of the document cover testing and examination of the AWI, i.e. automated weighing instruments used for the verification of the gross mass, weighbridges and requirements to the weighing equipment.
